Peter FitzSimons Launches A Simpler Time

Peter FitzSimons is a journalist, entertaining speaker and author of nearly twenty books – including Kokoda, Tobruk and biographies of Nancy Wake, Kim Beazley, Nene King, Nick Farr-Jones, Steve Waugh and John Eales. He is a passionate Australian and brings to you his latest book  a memoir of laughter, loss and billycarts. “It still amazes me what they allowed us to do without their supervision or help while remaining deeply loving parents. Climb trees from the age of four or five? No problem. Drive the tractor from the age of eight or nine onwards? Good luck to you. Haul on the hoist to pull the half-ton bins filled with oranges off the trailer? Yes. Take your bike out on the Pacific Highway and ride to school? Just be careful, but okay,” he writes. Peter describes a childhood of mischief, camaraderie, eccentric characters, drama – and constant love and generosity in his new book A Simpler Time.
